Nikkiso Acquires AquiSense

News
Two companies to combine their UV-C LED disinfection products

AquiSense Technologies, a maker if UV-C LED disinfection systems, has been acquired by Nikkiso America in a cash deal.

With over a half century of product development, Nikkiso has provided original technologies to a range of industries, including medical, aviation, life sciences, and microelectronics. AquiSense and Nikkiso share a common goal of providing disinfection products employing UV-C LEDs.

This acquisition allows Nikkiso and AquiSense to accelerate market commercialisation of disinfection products around the world. "We have been excited to see the innovative solutions at AquiSense enter a number of high value markets and look forward to supporting those efforts," said Dennis Martin, CEO of Nikkiso America. 

Commenting further, Oliver Lawal, CEO of AquiSense said, "We have worked closely with a number of suppliers to integrate the best UV-C LEDs, and Nikkiso have consistently delivered strong product to us." Lawal will continue in his role, together with Jennifer Pagan as CTO, and all other employees.

AquiSense manufactures the PearlAqua, an award-winning UV-C LED water disinfection system; the solid-state technology used offers benefits previously unseen in UV disinfection. Both companies believe UV LED applications will improve health standards and boost the disinfection economy. 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
